Takeaway menu is very expensive....curries do not come with rice or chips included like other places and curry alone more expensive than everywhere else. Chicken very rubbery. The restaurant however is better but still expensive.

We stopped on impulse for New Years Eve. Very good food. Only one criticism, the food did not stay hot enough without hot plates on the table!

Very pleasant welcome and we were served by a very helpful and friendly waitress called Jordan. Food was excellent, cooked well and very tasty. Only negative is there isn't much atmosphere however food and staff make up for it.

Very warm friendly service on an unappealing wet post bank holiday evening. The food was very good with duck very enjoyable and well presented. The main courses were good portions and represented good value. We visited with our children who enjoyed the food.

Really good to see that this restaurant is back to its best. We used to used this restaurant regularly but the last few years its been a little hit and miss. But today the restaurant was nearly full, the food was fresh and well cooked, and the waiting staff helpful and efficient. All in all our family enjoyed an excellent... More

I visited this restaurant with my son having just returned from a trip to Hong Kong. Without doubt the food was as good as anything I have eaten in 'westernised' Chinese restaurants - good quality ingredients, well cooked and served by very friendly and attentive staff. A good wine list offers reasonable wines at a fair price but they do... More

Not up to Canton's usual standard....our take away wasn't as good as it usually is. There didn't seem to be much meat in the Hong Kong style sweet & sour and the rice was really greasy. The mixed veg contained incipid cabbage and really didn't seem fresh. Really dissappointed compared to previous visits. The barbecue ribs were good however, but... More

we used to frequent this restaurant quite often before it underwent a complete refurbishment. Since it's been done out (and that took a year! we thought it had gone bust..) we went back for a much looked forward to yummie meal.. The refurb/ decor is 'ok', a bit too contemporary for my liking, uncomfortable chairs and sadly the ambience disappeared... More
